7 Indian Reservations Open to Travelers
There are approximately 326 Indian reservations in the United States, according to the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs, each deemed a sovereign nation with the inherent power of self-government. While there are more than 550 federally recognized tribes, not every tribe has their own reservation as many co-govern or live across multiple lands.
While Native Americans are traditionally private and reclusive, today many embrace tourists, despite the hardships Native Americans have faced in the last two centuries, and graciously allow guests a rare glimpse into the life of America’s indigenous people.
Every tribe has its own unique history and customs, making any visit to a reservation an unforgettable cultural experience. To further understand the Native American way of life, visit any of these reservations.
